I am stuck at 1300-1500 range for a while now. I am regularly doing contest and solving problem in range 1500-1700. I feel like I am not learning anything and my training is a waste. How should i train, so that I can learn fast as well as gain rating. Thank you guys.

here's a couple tips:

  1. Never give up, you'll find that the solution may not be out of reach
  2. Expand your toolbelt, learn a new data structure and algorithm every time you can. It can be uncomfortable, but a lot of youtube videos and websites can help

Finally, use this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1J2x8pIYQ3MXANgvzOgBciWd3d79j_Exa/view It's from a grandmaster and has a lot of tips I've used.

there are no 100% efficient training method.just keep grinding.dont see high rank user because what they do is only coding and socially awkward,so enjoy ur training and ull wont feel ur training is wasteful.also if u reach higher level dont forget to help others(dont just say google stuff to newbies like other gms)

    There's indeed no single 100% efficient training method that is perfectly suitable for everyone. Some people are complete beginners. The others may be stuck at a certain level for months/years and see no improvement. The optimal training method may be different for each person. The trick is to give different methods a try and figure out what works the best for you (that's what I did myself during the last few months). And I surely don't agree that the simplistic "just keep grinding" method is optimal. There are some important nuances about it.
